* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The original dolls (such as signature Cleo) had keyboard phones, as the touchscreen revolution hadn't happened yet.

** This also goes the other way where some fans are more than a little creeped out with the UnfortunateImplications where Clawd even mentions that he knew her since he was only a pup. Added to that that she's 1600 years old, despite both being monsters, it still doesn't make fans any less uncomfortable.
*** If the genders were reversed, it probably would've made the UnfortunateImplications more apparent...

** The stop-motion "Ghoul for the Summer" promotions may count as this, due to the attempts at facial animation, but the limited extent to which they could do so.

* WhatAnIdiot: Poor Deuce really TookALevelInDumbass in ''Boo York, Boo York''. For some reason, he ''trusts Nefera'' and thinks she knows Cleo's best interests, despite the fact that Nefera has already established herself as a villain and earned herself a ZeroPercentApprovalRating. He continues to listen to Nefera and thus makes a public fool of himself, and she convinces him to break up with Cleo despite her ''clearly not wanting him to''. This leads to chaos, and all because Deuce somehow forgot his girlfriend's relationship with her sister.
* WhatMightHaveBeen: Pre-reboot, a live action movie was planned. The Monster High Youtube is currently releasing the storyboards and their scratch tracks on Youtube in [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K-esque]] short clips as "The Lost Movie", indirectly confirming that it fell through. The movie centers around the long-awaited crossover with Franchise/EverAfterHigh, and there's even a scratch track for the trailer.

** Isi Dawndancer, who contains design elements from multiple Native American tribes. Is she okay because she's more inclusive to a wide Native American market and the deer-woman legend is told by many tribes, or is she insensitive, homogenizing tribes without much care toward their traditions?

* LoveItOrHateIt: The 2016 reboot of the franchise (complete with new doll faces, different animation styles for both the movies and webisodes, and Draculaura's promotion to the main character of the franchise) has already begun to cause this among fans. Many feel the new style goes against the heart of the franchise and its message to embrace one's 'freaky flaws' by making the dolls less 'dark and edgy' and more generically cute. There's even an online petition to get Mattel to restore the original doll faces. Others welcome the change to the franchise, or at least accept Mattel's reasons for rebooting it, and point out how they've been gradually softening the franchise since its beginning.

** Clawdia's face mold. Some people like the personality of her toothy grin, and others are creeped out.

** After the backlash over Ghoulia's conspicuous absence in the reboot, Mattel has made an announcement that she will make a big return in 2017.

* CreepyAwesome: Some of the designs, like C.A. Cupid and Freak du Chic Twyla take advantage of darker gothic themes and pull it off really well.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Ghoulia has been largely the fan favorite since her first appearance, which still remains. Her original doll easily sold for 4x its retail when released onto ebay. Creator/{{Mattel}} took notice of this and gave her 6 dolls in total for 2011, including the SDCC exclusive, giving her nearly as different versions as Frankie, Clawdeen & Cleo, two of which are only available in multipacks that fans have no qualms about purchasing (despite that one is a repackage of 4 old dolls included with her) exclusively for her. However, in the 2016 reboot she's OutOfFocus. Clawd, Heath, and Abbey also count.

** Twyla, Casta Fierce, and Wydowna/Bonita are rather popular on Tumblr.



** The dolls themselves may fall into this. If not all of them, then Iris and collector's edition Draculaura may cause this effect.

** Hoo-Dude is disliked for his annoying personality and voice, as well as the fact that he's a major character in ''Frights, Camera, Action!'' (mostly stating the obvious and doing stupid comic relief things) for no real reason other than {{padding}}. Some fans have even compared him to [[StarWars Jar-Jar]].
